I Only posted this for slim. Thanks for the update!
slim here not sure if im doing this correctly , since I cant remember how to. I have been a flare for a while now and im pretty sick of it. Had to go recieve iv solu medrol to counter act it. that helped except the side effects i could have done without. So here I was on mothers day unable to move and retaining fluid and oh yeah the pain topped it off. Now i have these rosy cheeks and i didnt even need to use make up. I have cushings from all the steroids and cant recognize my face. I have to learn to dress a new body since the one i use to dress 32 years is gone. i might sound slightly angry but this disease is pissing me off im not a quitter and i refused to go down without a fight. My rheumy wants me to go on disability . Psychologically Im not ready and emotionally it might destroy me. I am schedule to recieve my first dose of Benlysta on 6/03/11 and hopefully this new drug work so wish me luck and Ill keep everyone posted. Pain free hugs too all.

Please let us know when you start the new drug! I really hope it works
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Your not on your own concerning Lupus but how it's changing you and also being in alot of pain, it must be terrible for you.
I hope things ease for you soon and best of wishes to you slim. xxx
Good to hear from you.
